I am on my first trimester, and I chose not to publicly announced it on my social media. But, I am not sorry for it. I seriously can’t stand why people (i mean relatives) are so eager on my pregnancy. This is an ironic shallow phenomenon. Why are people excited to know ever single details of my life when I am the one who is expecting. What if it is just a cheeseburger hiding in my tummy? How embarrassing can that theory be.
As a expectant mother, I am chill in taking my milestone slowly, jotting down notes on my changes and savior my moments with my husband.
Da berape bulan?
Kalau isteri tak tunjuk, lelaki dia pulak la tunjuk..
.. yelah maklumlah kita da nampak tiga kali kan..kat pantai, kolam renang la kan..
…mane lah tahu, nanti da bertiga kan
Just don’t. Don’t bother with the hints and sarcasm. I already know it all along, way before anyone notice. I’m just pretending to be stupid.
I persuaded my husband in not informing anyone on our pregnancy until we had our first Antenatal care and scan. Even though, he required a huge amount of willpower. I have relatives hinting on my tummy changes, I still keep a mum and ignore their antics. Some just straight up asked me while looking down on my tummy and ask how long am I? These people just couldn’t shut it. Did I mentioned, some even tried to touch my belly during wedding reception. These people does exists. Excuse me, let me enjoy my lunch.
I have specific personal reasons as to why I chose not to publicly announce our bundle of joy. I have married friends, whom had not been blessed with children yet. I have no intention to push it to their faces. To me, I accepted my pregnancy as a form of a blessing that can be given and taken back any point of time. And I think no woman should be pressured to announce to whole world. It is your body in fact.
I am thankful that my mother does not push me on my pregnancy. I guess she knows when I am ready, I will announce it.
So, do respect any pregnant ladies’ space. Because we can’t stand obnoxious people.
